SHC Patient, Feb 2015

I liked the doctor very much.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

I am very fortunate to have Dr. Blackburn as my doctor.

SHC Patient, Jun 2014

Best in-the west.

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

Dr. Blackburn always takes time, always friendly always knowledgeable & when he doesn't know something he calls a colleague or looks it up.

SHC Patient, Jan 2014

Never got resolution to the problem I waited a month to see him about. I have to see him again.

SHC Patient, Dec 2013

Not the most friendly.
